LaVonda Downard Photography Weddings + Elopements

Intimate. Detailed. Unforgettable.

As your day approaches know that I am here to photograph every detail you've worked hard to incorporate into your day. On your wedding day you want a photographer that cares about the emotion and memory behind each image they deliver. A photographer who recognizes you as leading role, with the supporting appearances of your closest loved ones, and considers every thread, lace, satin, button, cuff, diamond, and strand a special guest. I'd be honored to be there to capture those and every moment in between.

"When I decided to do a small intimate wedding, I knew I had to find someone that would see my vision and make it 100 times better. LaVonda did that! Not only is she super talented, but she is such a kind, sweet person with a huge heart that truly wants to see her clients happy. Leading up to the big day, LaVonda kept in touch with me and never made me feel like I didn't know what to expect. She was always available to answer any question or bounce an idea off of. Before the wedding, I had never worked with a photographer before and was a little scared, but LaVonda made my husband and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera and was able to capture the most flattering, beautiful photos. On the big day, LaVonda made sure my husband and I stayed on schedule, so we could get all of the pictures that we had planned for, but never once did LaVonda or her assistant make us feel rushed or make us feel like we were not getting the time to enjoy ourselves. I now have photos that I will get to look back on for the rest of my life and feel like I am reliving the night again and again! If you are a bride to be, and you are doing an intimate/ small wedding; choose LaVonda to be your photographer and you will

NOT be disappointed."
